DeepMind’s Vibrant New Virtual World Trains Flexible AI With Endless Play

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI, transportation

The paper’s authors said they’ve created an endlessly challenging virtual playground for AI. The world, called XLand, is a vibrant video game managed by an AI overlord and populated by algorithms that must learn the skills to navigate it.

The game-managing AI keeps an eye on what the game-playing algorithms are learning and automatically generates new worlds, games, and tasks to continuously confront them with new experiences.

The team said some veteran algorithms faced 3.4 million unique tasks while playing around 700000 games in 4000 XLand worlds. But most notably, they developed a general skillset not related to any one game, but useful in all of them.
